Kelly Clarkson’s new single rocks

 
 

You may have heard that Kelly Clarkson is releasing her third CD, My December, later this year (the official release date hasn’t been announced, but it’s likely due out this summer). The first single, "Never Again," has just hit the airwaves, and in my opinion, it rocks. Here’s Kelly’s new look:

When she won the first season of American Idol, I wasn’t so sure that she was gonna make it as a pop star, but after her second album, Breakaway, was released, she crossed over from guilty pleasure to full-on rock star. And after hearing an entire bar full of dykes singing along to "Since U Been Gone" a couple of years ago, I realized she has also crossed over into full-on lesbian icon. (Yeah, we’ve heard the rumors, too.)

Some of the lyrics are a little funny, especially the first line ("I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green" — ha!), but the rest of the song is chock full of angsty goodness just begging to be used in fan video chronicling some dyke drama. Let me just post the lyrics here for your subtexty interpretations:

I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green
I hope when you’re in bed with her
you think of me
I would never wish bad things, but I don’t wish you well
Could you tell by the flames that burned your words
I never read your letter ’cause I knew what you’d say
Give me that Sunday school answer
Try and make it all OK

Does it hurt to know I’ll never be there
Bet it sucks to see my face everywhere
It was you who chose to end it like you did
I was the last to know
You knew
exactly what you were doin’
Don’t say you simply lost your way
She may believe you, but I never will
Never again

If she really knows the truth, she deserves you
A trophy wife, oh, how cute
Ignorance is bliss, but when your day comes
And he’s through with you
And he’ll be through with you
You’ll die together, but alone
You wrote me in a letter
You couldn’t say it right to my face
Well, give me that Sunday school answer
Repent yourself away

Never again will I hear you
Never again will I miss you
Never again will I fall to you
Never again will I kiss you
Never again will I want to
Never again will I love you
Never!

Tell it, sister! So, what’s she really saying here? Hmm.
